I’ve always thought how nice it must be to get writers’ cramp from signing autographs. Never thought it would actually happen but hey, a girl can dream.
Yet there we were at our favourite Sydney bookshop, Newtown’s fabulously-named Better Read Than Dead on Monday night, signing a mountain of freshly-printed copies of The Painted Sky.
Any true bookworm can tell you how intoxicating that new-book smell is, but it’s SO much better when it’s your own book! As well as Denise, Jane R and me, our two co-authors, Jane St Vincent Welch and Maddy Oliver were there to add their squiggles to the books that (we hope) will be all sold at the launch on Saturday night.
We figured we would rather spend our time at the party sipping champers and writing personalised inscriptions rather than head down and signing, which is why we had our little workshop. Can’t wait for the weekend!
